This page is part of a list of original releases by release date of international commercially-released regular stereo Dylan albums. They do not contain rarities or obscurities and are not eligible for the Searching For A Gem list. Nevertheless, their interest value or scarcity means they're worth listing here - as far as I know some are not included on any other Internet site. Promo releases of regular albums are now listed here and no longer in the former yearly Promo sections.

Original US stereo LP, Columbia CS 8786, 27 May 1963. For the mono release of this album, see Mono Album Releases.

For details of the withdrawn original album with four replaced tracks, see 1963.

This title was one of the fifteen Dylan albums released in late 2003 as a hybrid CD/SA-CD. This is playable both in stereo on an ordinary CD player and in enhanced stereo on an SA-CD player or a DVD player that also plays SA-CDs (Sony's higher range models all do this). This period was one of great creativity for Bob, and there are many excellent unreleased tracks from the Freewheelin' sessions - sadly the opportunity to include many of these as bonus tracks or even a bonus CD was missed.


Original CD Releases


"The Freewheelin' Bob Dylan" - CD release, Columbia CK 8786 (USA/Canada), early 1990s:


Columbia CK 8786 (USA) - front insert scan by Hans Seegers
The front insert of this release is a 12-page booklet. The front picture is the full album cover (stereo crop) without the song titles. The reverse of the front insert and the rear insert have a light yellow background with a green border. The CD itself is silver with black text. Moise Potié has a copy bought in Canada in the mid-1990s with an import sticker (shown below left) and a different CD design.

Wil Gielen has two copies of the US release imported into Japan, one with an obi from the Shinseido record store chain, and one with a different obi from an unknown company, see below.

Thanks to Hans Seegers and Moise Potié for information and scans .

"The Freewheelin' Bob Dylan" - CD releases, Columbia CK 8786 (USA for export to Japan), mid 1990s:


Columbia CK 8786 (USA for Japan) - front with obi and stickers, scan by Wil Gielen (Shinseido copy)
Wil Gielen has a mid 1990s copy of the US release imported into Japan with an obi from the Shinseido record store chain. The obi was added by the store to import US copies (which were much cheaper than Japanese releases) to provide buyers with information in Japanese. The front of the jewel case has a US “The Nice Price” sticker plus a Japanese “Columbia Trade Mark Licensed” sticker. The CD is slightly different from the US copy owned by Hans Seegers in that the "DIDP" number underneath the catalogue number to the right of the centre hole is missing (see detail scan). The "DIDP" number (Digital Identification Popular) is a code used by Sony DADC (Digital Audio Disc Corporation) on CDs pressed in Terre Haute, IN, or one of their other CD plants in the USA, from 1983 onwards (Classical CDs had "DIDC"). It's not present on this CD, which probably means that it was either manufactured by Sony in Japan, or at another US CD pressing plant under contract from Columbia. The price on the obi of ¥1,408 has Japanese characters meaning "excluding tax", which means it was imported into Japan after the introduction of sales tax in 1989.

Wil also has a US copy with a different obi from an unknown company. This obi has no price, which means the copy was used for rental. It has the same two front stickers as the Shinseido copy. This time the CD is the same as Hans Seegers' copy above including the US Sony DADC "DIDP" number.

Thanks to Wil Gielen for information and scans.

"The Freewheelin' Bob Dylan" - CD release, Columbia WCK 8786 (Canada), late 1980s:


Columbia WCK 8786 (Canada) - front insert scan by Hans Seegers
This Canadian CD release has a unique front insert three-fold booklet with a close-up from the regular front sleeve. The picture on the other panel of the booklet is a wider crop, but still doesn't show the full cover. The CD itself is silver with black text.

CBS CDCBS 32390 (Europe)/Columbia CD 32390 (Europe) - front scan by Hans Seegers

The CDs from these three releases were produced in Austria. The logo at top left of the front insert picture (presumably a reproduction of an LP front) is blacked out. The 1989 release is still on the CBS label and has a 16-page booklet. It has a silver/red CD with black text and still has the CBS logo. Éamonn Ó Catháin has noticed that "(C) 1989" is on the rear insert, but surprisingly "(P) 1975" is on the CD itself.

Columbia CD 32390 (Europe) - detail of CD, scan by Hans Seegers (dated 1975)

The 1990s Spanish release is on the CBS/Sony label and has the CBS/Sony logo on both the rear insert and the CD. It only has an 8-page booklet. The Discos CBS S.A. address was Paseo de la Castellana 93, 28046 Madrid. The rear insert is still dated 1989 and the CD still dated 1975.

The 1997 release is on the Columbia label in the "Nice Price" series and has a slightly different rear insert and CD design, this time with the Columbia logo on both the rear insert and the CD. Again, it only has the 8-page booklet, but it also has a promo insert advertising Time Out Of Mind (not shown). The rear insert is still dated 1989 and the CD still dated 1975.

"The Freewheelin' Bob Dylan" - hybrid SA-CD release, Columbia CH 90321 (USA/Canada)/Columbia 512348 6 (Europe), 16 Sep 2003:

Columbia CH 90321 (USA/Canada):


Columbia CH 90321 (USA/Canada) - front with Columbia logo (my copy)


Columbia CH 90321 (USA/Canada) - detail of outside of digipak

This release is housed in a two-fold digipak and contains both a CD version and an SA-CD stereo version. Don't ever say Columbia can't make a joke - the rear of the digipak uses the same picture from the cover photo session used for the bootleg CD The Freewheelin' Bob Dylan Out-takes! The inside of the digipak has two unpublished pictures of Bob from 1963. There is an 8-page booklet with the original sleeve notes and more unpublished pictures of Bob from 1963. The SA-CD design reproduces the Columbia US "360º SOUND" stereo vinyl label used in 1963.

My copy is from Canada. The sticker on the outside of the release distributed in Canada is shown below also. The booklet for the Canadian release has been printed in Canada (which may explain the front picture colour difference between the digipak and the booklet). The CD was sourced from the USA.

The American and European editions of Super Audio CDs are almost identical but they have some differences: a different catalogue number (on the spine and on the CDs), some text at bottom of rear of the digipak, the European copyright logos ("SACEM"/"BIEM") on the CDs and the copyright text in the circumference.

Thanks to Jack Guerreiro for pointing out that the front text on the Canadian release is smaller than on the US and European releases, and the apostrophe after "Freewheelin'" is missing. Jack has also spotted that the reverse of the rear insert on the European release has a complete picture which shows through the clear CD tray, whereas it has a white bar on the left on the US and Canadian releases.

"The Freewheelin' Bob Dylan" - Blu-spec CD release, Sony Music SICP 20214 (Japan), 26 Aug 2009:


Sony Music SICP 20214 (Japan) - front of sealed copy, scan by Wil Gielen
This release is on a Blu-spec CD, an audio-only disc which was then presumably intended to be Sony's new high quality audio format. The copy shown is still sealed, with a blue and white obi with price ¥2,500 (¥2,381 before tax). The release date is shown as "09-8-26" (26 Aug 2009), the original release date as "63-5-27" (27 May 1963) and the withdrawal date as "10-2-25" (25 Feb 2010). It's not actually a Blu-ray disc as it says on the sticker, but it is made using Blu-ray technology.

Thanks to Wil Gielen for information and scans.

This massive set is the latest in a series of "Complete Columbia Album Collections" featuring artists such as Miles Davis, Charlie Mingus, Duke Ellington, Dave Brubeck and even Blue Oyster Cult. The CD version of the set includes 41 Dylan albums in card sleeves, 14 of which have been remastered for this project, plus a 2CD set of previously released non-album tracks entitled Side Tracks. The albums exclude all compilations and The Bootleg Series sets, but do include the deleted 1973 Dylan album, see 1973, and the extra 2CD set Side Tracks includes one side of the 1971 single George Jackson (Acoustic version), R-0085, see 1971. The set is therefore listed in 2013. The set also includes a hard cover book with extensive new liner notes and previously unseen photos.

All the CDs come in card sleeves. The European sleeves are made of thicker card than the US sleeves, but they are otherwise identical, so are not shown. The catalogue number on the sleeve is "88691924312JK2" plus "DISC 2". The CDs are different in detail, the US The Freewheelin' Bob Dylan CD has catalogue number "88691924312D2", whereas the European CD has catalogue number "88691924312-02". The European CD was made in the EU (probably Austria). The US and European copyright details are now printed round the circumference of each CD, but the American CD doesn't have a country of origin. The EU copyright details are shown here, but not for the later CDs.

Sony Music SICP 30471-30520 (Japan), 26 Mar 2014 onwards:


Picture from amazon.com
Thanks to Sonny Boy McFitzson for news that The Complete Album Collection was released in Japan in four decade-related parts, all in 2014. The first part, called Dylan '60s, was released by Sony Music Japan on 26 Mar 2014. The Blu-Spec CD2 specification CDs come in card sleeves with printed inner sleeves and "SONY MUSIC" instead of "COLUMBIA" on the discs, which are numbered SICP 30471 to SICP 30481 (Bob Dylan's Greatest Hits, not included in the US and European sets, is included here as SICP 30479). Side Tracks, to be released at the same time, is SICP 30519-20. All the sleeves will have orange top obis similar to the 2004 Japanese release in card sleeves. The 2013 remastered The Freewheelin' Bob Dylan is SICP 30472. It will almost certainly be the same as the 2013 Japanese Blu-spec CD2 release, Sony Music SICP 30025, see above.

Thanks to Éamonn Ó Catháin for the picture of the 1960s decade set from amazon.com. Thanks to Manuel García Jara for information and scans.
